"A single coil pick-up normally uses a .47 cap and a 250k pot. A 500k pot and .22 cap will darken the high frequencies.  "

"Kirk, sorry it took so long to answer. That plate was the control panel on the guitar that all the parts came off of. It's just 3 ply pick-guard material. I found the original guitar in a thrift store. "

Introduction

Posted on October 13, 2018 at 2:24pm 3 Comments

Hello all, my name is Freddie Cisneros, I'm a musician originally from Texas now living in Prescott, Arizona.

I have been repairing guitars and other music instruments for many years. I'm a service center for Martin Guitar, Fender, and other companies out here in the West.

Don "Boz" Bostwick and I shared a Fox-Hole in Viet Nam. We had a lot of adventures back then, he was an inspiration to me.
